Note about répartir

The note about répartir in this lesson:

Note that the verb répartir is NOT a derivative of partir, but shares its root with the word repartition, and does follow the regular -IR conjugation.

Is a little confusing, because 'partir' is not mentioned anywhere, and there is a very subtle difference with 'repartir' that is also not mentioned. Having some of this context would help!

Hi Rant,

I understand your confusion ..

The verb 'partir' isn't included because it is an irregular verb and does not conjugate like the regular verbs ending in IR, 'finir''choisir'  which go

" issons, issez, issent" in the plural forms BUT

je pars, tu pars, il/elle/on part, nous partons , vous partez, ils/elles partent.

Répartir however is a regular verb , and follow the regular verbs ending in IR conjugation rules.

Hopes this helps!

I agree, a small note about  'repartir' not being a regular '-ir' verb at the bottom of this lesson might help.  I assume there is an advanced lesion about  'répartir' and 'repartir' .
